Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly in talks with Napoli over a deal which would see Polish forward Arkadiusz Milik join the club.

Spurs are desperate to sign a striker this summer and Milik is on the agenda after he was left out of the squad for Napoli's first two Serie A games this season by manager Gennaro Gattuso.

Napoli's all-time leading goalscorer Dries Mertens and club record signing Victor Osimhen have been preferred up top, meaning the Italian side are willing to sell him for the right price.

A report from the Sun claims that middle men have been working on the terms of the deal for a few days and it could cost around £25m.

"Yes, I want, I need a striker," Mourinho said. "But I want to make it very, very clear that the club – the structure above me – knows that I need a striker and also wants a striker.

"We realise that more than ever we need that. So yes we’re working on it.
